...to regroup a bit. Wound up sleeping outside Friday night and the air did not do my lungs any favors. Fortunately it was pretty warm...in the 50's...so I wasn't freezing.
I was hanging out in the van at the Q.T. on the corner for pretty much all of Saturday. People were coming up to me after reading what I have written on the BIG windows on the side of the van. Asking me stuff...engaging in chit chat...sometimes offering me some assistance.
The day was going slowly and I was a fair distance away from what I needed to get the room back. When this fellow comes up to me and asks if I needed gasoline, while handing me some cash. I explained I did, but was focusing on the motel bill and getting a couple of nights more. He told me to pull up to the pumps and he would fill the tank.
This HUGE!!!! I can't recall the last time I have a full tank.
While it was filling we talked about my situation...how and why I was in Texas...about me getting sick....etc.
The tank full, I thank him over and over for the help. He tells me he's glad to do it and heads off. I go back to my parking spot and linger.
A few minutes later, a truck identical to his pulls up 2 spots away from me and, lo and behold, it's him again. He asks me about the motel and I tell him what I have to have to get back in and he offers to go with me to make up the arrears.
Well...he not only pays what I owe...he springs for another full week here!
Huge-erer!!! (I know..not a word....)
Next time some one tries to tell me there is no God, I am gonna kick them in the crotch!
So Sunday was spent regrouping and letting my lungs feel better. Even the Golden Globes this year was over all enjoyable.
Today I am working on getting my auto insurance paid. The job interview I had to postpone last week is rescheduled for this Wednesday. Also, taking part in a paid study in Dallas on Saturday that pays $200.00.
For now I get back to emailing resumes and job applications. Sally forth and all that....
